Labial Contouring (Labiaplasty)

Labial contouring surgery is surgery to correct enlargement of the inner vaginal lips, or labia minora.

Enlargement of the inner vaginal lips, or labia minora, is a medical condition known as labial hypertrophy, which affects many women. The labia may become elongated or stretched due to hormonal changes or through the process of vaginal delivery. In some cases, the labia is very asymmetrical with one labia being much larger than the other one. Regardless of the cause, this condition can be corrected through labial contouring surgery.

The labial contouring procedure, also known as labiaplasty, can also be completed in conjunction with other procedures if necessary, such as vaginoplasty (repairing vaginal relaxation that may occur after child-birth), perineoplasty (repair of a relaxed perineal body or restoring the normal tone of the opening of the vagina), laparoscopic reconstructive procedures, or even vaginal hysterectomy.

What does Labial Contouring treat?

Labial Contouring (Labiaplasty) reshapes the lips of the vagina to enhance aesthetic appeal and sexual appearance. Discomfort related to large labia minora may be improved by labial contouring as well.

Labial Contouring results

You will have a labia that is sleeker and more symmetrical. Cosmetic labial contouring results in a rejuvenated appearance of the vagina, as well as greater comfort and enhanced sexual experience. Results will be noticeable shortly after the surgery, with optimal results appearing within a few months.

What to expect with Labial Contouring

The labial contouring procedure is designed to reduce uneven or enlarged labia minora without leaving any visible scars. Our plastic surgeons will contour, reshape, and reduce the size of the labia, without creating a scar on the outer edges leaving the labia with their natural pigmentation and a more youthful appearance.

Recovery After Labial Contouring

Following the procedure, you will likely experience some moderate discomfort, which can be managed through medication, and are advised to apply cold compresses to the affected area and refrain from sexual intercourse for six weeks. Work can typically be resumed within five days. In most cases after healing, the cosmetic labial contouring is undetectable.
